Good idea! Maybe instead of a trick that week we could just do a refresher/updater on the existing tricks. I would go for once a month, so that would be every 4th trick. Otherwise, I feel like that if we keep doing one trick a week it will become overwhelming really fast, or we'll have a bunch of half trained tricks.

Me, too, I definitely didn't finish the sit up to the degree that I would call it learned/trained. I think it's a great idea.

I love the idea of a catch up week

Okay, I did a second session with Boone this morning, AND I figured out how to just take snippets from each of the sessions. So, here's where we are so far:



Certainly not the fastest spin in the world, but he's getting it!

Awesome! Looking good! The hand signal is pretty easy to fade, it just takes a little time.

I wonder if someone would have an idea of how to train a spin like this, but for dogs...


Maybe with a platform...**** platforms...

I love Pip spinning himself into a sit and Maisy's tail going a mile a minute with a boing in her spin. And honestly, Squash could do nothing and I would still love him. He's just so....Squash.
